Ross McFarlane writes soft and kind stories which he yells in a weak Glaswegian accent far too fast for anyone to understand. He wants to write with the perfect simplicity of ONSIND, stir up heady excitement in a crowd like Laura Jane Grace, and draw you slowly into a Craig Finn-esk world of his own creation.
Self-styled "Glasgow's No. 1 Support Act", Ross has opened for touring poets and musicians alike including; Sabrina Benaim, Shane Koyczan, Rudy Fransisco, Rae Spoon, Petrol Girls, Throw Me Off The Bridge, and Jesus and his Judgmental Father. Catch him on the MegaBuses searching for touring musicians to accost with poetry.
“What a buzzing ball of talent Ross McFarlane is.”
– Sabrina Benaim
